During 2014 and 2015, four species of bark beetles (Coleoptera: Curculionidae: Scolytinae), belonging to a single genus Scolytus Geoffroy, 1762, were collected from elm trees in East Azarbaijan province, northwestern Iran. They were Scolytus pygmaeus (Fabricius, 1787), Scolytus ensifer Eichhoff, 1881, Scolytus ecksteini Butovitsch, 1929, and Scolytus kirschii fasciatus Reitter, 1890. All of them represent new records for East Azarbaijan province.
